About This Event

Pittsburgh, a newly designated City of Learning, is joining cities across the country in an effort to capture learning that happens anywhere and anytime through the design and development of digital badges. Badges are a way to capture, promote, and transfer all of the learning that occurs within a broader community context; in-school, out-of-school, and online.

On June 10, 2014 at 6 p.m., The Sprout Fund will convene national partners, including the MacArthur Foundation, The Mozilla Foundation, and The Badge Alliance; local leaders; and those with an interest in digital badges to launch a city-wide effort to co-design a badge ecosystem for Pittsburgh.

The event will feature remarks from both national and local partners, and a reception to follow. This event will occur on the campus of Carlow University in the Kresge Theater.
